SCENES OF THE SOUTH

DREAMLAND

Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

 

This Legendary establishment was opened by John "Big Daddy" Bishop on the south side of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in the Jerusalem Heights section, in 1958 and has become one of the best-known barbeque rib places in the south to sports fans.  The atmosphere there can be best described as "casual down home" and one never knows just who he might rub elbows with while sitting at the bar.  Although several other franchises have opened around the south in the past several years, the old original location in T-Town remains the favorite to fans on game day. 

SCENES OF THE SOUTH

REELFOOT STUMPJUMPER

Samburg, Tennessee

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

 

Although the origin of the Reelfoot Lake "Stumpjumper" boats are unclear, they are believed to have first been built in the mid 1800"s by Herman B. "Con" Young.  The unique boats, built to navigate the many stumps and trees still standing in the lake, are featured in many museums across the country, including the Smithsonian Institution and are true collectors items.  The most unique features of the boats are the bow facing, ratcheted oars that allow the operator to row while facing forward.  Sometime in the 1930's the boats were equipped with a motor and rudder system fashioned from a washing machine motor.  The boats have had inboard motors since that time.


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

BILOXI LIGHTHOUSE

Biloxi, Mississippi

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

Lighthouses are frequently isolated and sometimes quite hard to reach.  Not so with the Biloxi Lighthouse.  Its white 48-foot tower sits sandwiched between the eastbound and westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 90 along the waterfront inside the city of Biloxi, Mississippi.  For more than half a century the lighthouse was kept by Maria Younghans until her retirement in 1920. 


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

SAND ISLAND SUNSET

Fort Morgan, Alabama

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

 

The coastline of the Gulf of Mexico along the southern United States offers some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world.  The attractions of sun, sea and sand have drawn thousands to establish beach front properties along  most of the remaining shoreline through the years, but these homes afford their own beauty.   As the sun drops down behind the old Sand Island Lighthouse, near Fort Morgan Alabama, these buildings take on the glow of dusk and reflect the magnificent display of a seaside sunset.


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

TIRED IRON

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

 

The 1953 Chevrolet Half-ton pickup truck was a stylish family runabout and an all-around workhorse.  With its unique and modem styling, it quickly became one of the most popular trucks of that era and a source of pride for its owner.  All five of these classic vehicles, the '53 Chevy pickup, '37 Studebaker pickup, '41 Plymouth pickup, '40 Ford pickup, and '48 Chevy car have spent their capacity for usefulness to their once proud owners and now sit only as "tired iron".


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

USED CARS
Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

It was America's "dream machine" - a gleaming example of automobile showmanship at its finest... the '57 Chevy Bel Air.  Dazzling to look at and loaded with power, it was the car to own and be seen in.  But time and circumstances have taken their toll on all five of these classics of the road.  The '57 Chevy, '32 ford Coupe, '60 Ford Falcon, '40 Ford Sedan and the '56 Ford Fairlane have seen better days and have complete their usefulness.  They now stand in wait for the auto  crusher and a new life as recycled steel.


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

PAPA'S 1933 CHEVY

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

The 1933 Chevrolet CA Eagle 2-passenger Coupe, with a wheel base of 110.0 inches and weighing 2715 pounds, sold for around 500 US dollars new.  Its somewhat racy styling represented high-fashion motoring at its finest during the economically depressed years of the thirties and was a source of pride for its owners.  The completely new automotive design proudly carried on the General Motors tradition of excellence. 


SCENES OF THE SOUTH

BIRTH OF BIG MUDDY

Bemidji, Minnesota

Signed Open Edition Prints
$35.00 each
$50.00 each- matted with brass name plate

 

 

From the northwest end of Lake Itasca, near Bemidji, Minnesota, the Mississippi River begins its winding 2552 mile trek to the Gulf of Mexico.  The romantic 19th-century quest for the source of the mighty river brought many explorers to northern Minnesota.  The search ended when Ojibwe chief Ozawindib guided Henry Rowe Schoolcraft to Lake Itasca, some 1475 feet above sea level, in 1832.  Sorely tried by "voracious, long billed, and dyspeptic musketoes" and portages knee-deep in mud, the little band of explorers caught their first glimpse of the lake on July 13.  It was known to the Indians and traders as "Omushkos" or "Lac La Biche", both meaning Elk Lake, but Schoolcraft renamed it "Itasca" from a combination of the Latin words for "truth" and "head".
